Mihai Dimancescu, a Neurosurgeon, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Doctors for dedication, achievements, and leadership in health care.
When Dr. Dimancescu was three years old, he lived next to a farm in England. He was curious as to why animals and humans were so different, and figured that the best way to do this would be to study medicine. He proceeded to earn a Bachelor of Arts from Yale University in 1962 and an MD from the University of Toulouse in 1968, as well as a diploma from the American Board of Neurological Surgery. Dr. Dimancescu then accrued hands-on experience as a rotating intern at Purpan Hospital in France, a junior resident in general surgery at Hartford Hospital in Connecticut, a junior resident in neurosurgery at Albert Einstein-Montfiore Hospital in New York, a research fellow in spasticity and movement disorders at the University of Miami VA Hospital in Florida, and a senior resident in neurosurgery at the University of Miami in Florida. He has also served as an assistant instructor in neurological surgery at the University of Miami, a doctor in his NY-based private practice, the vice president of medical affairs at OmniCorder Tech, Inc., and the president of Gogosh, Inc.
The highlight of Dr. Dimancescu’s career thus far was pioneering treatments for comas. It was a 40-year, primarily pro bono effort, and he is proud to see it successfully bring people out of their comas and back into their lives. Dr. Dimancescu also pioneered new surgical techniques in the tri-state area. Before he introduced them back in 2000, no one in the area was using them. He attributes his achievements and longevity to his international education and love of the humanities because his knowledge and interaction with patients goes beyond just the science of medicine.
Now, Dr. Dimancescu is using his skills as a neurosurgeon to help the people of Rockville Centre, NY, through his private practice. He is affiliated with numerous hospitals in the area, including the Long Island Jewish Medical Center and NYU Winthrop Hospital. Additionally, Dr. Dimancescu is the executive administrator and senior neurosurgery consultant of Neurological Surgery P.C., the director of brain studies at the International School of the Evan Thomas Institute, and a neurosurgery consultant and chairman of the board of directors at the Institute for the Achievement of Human Potential. He keeps in touch with his peers by affiliating with prominent organizations like the American Medical Association, the Medical Society for the State of New York, the Congress of Neurological Surgeons, the American Association of Neurological Surgeons, the Nassau County Medical Society, and the World Medical Association.
